  • The staff was superb! They made us feel like home from the minute we stepped in until the very end of our stay. The toilets weren't in such a good condition. Sometimes we had to go through several toilets to find one that wasn't blocked. All in all a great experience, anyways!

  • the localization is perfect! 5 min to Big Ben and Westmister Abbey and 10 min to Trafalgar square,it's hard to find any other hostel or hotel In this region. The Rooms are very small,and there is a train station behind ,so the noise can be a problem

  • Great location. I was able to walk almost everywhere which saved me a good amount of money. I wish there was a lounge of some sort to hang out and meet other people from the hostel. The only places you could really hang out is in the big rooms and people were often trying to sleep at that time. The kitchen is super tiny and gets pretty crazy when more than three people are in there.

  • a genuine British Pub and a hostel in the same space. the staff was very kind, given all the details we ask and providing additional information. the room ( 4 bed dorm room) was too small and the toilet and shower are located out side the dormitory. the good part is that the hostel is located 5 minutes walking from Waterloo Station, and you have the pub just down the stairs.
